Clean and tidy

Yesterday evening, I visited SP Road, one of the busiest street in Bangalore well-known for the electronic gadgets available for reasonable prices. In other words, you name it, they have it! Its narrow road and One way with people commuting at any hour of the day.

I wanted to buy 500gb HDD and was lurking to find a shop which would offer the best deal. In less than an hour, bought it for the best deal.

Meanwhile, my attention was caught by roadside vendor who was selling lassi, badam milk etc in a plastic tumblers. The lassi, milk was packed in a huge steel container inside a box on his cycle. To the huge box, a plastic cover was tied which was used as a dust bin.

I was amused by his wit. I appreciated him telling him that his idea was great and people didn't throw the used plastic tumblers on the road...and yes, I couldn't stop clicking this. :D

Though, he didn't have a dust bin, he had at least found a substitute. If each one of us contribute, we can have a clean and tidier place. Each of us can make a difference.

  1. really nice of this guy. an individual effort. m too in blore :)

  2. We do it always when we go to outdoor picnics. We carry a large trash bag to dump the waste. If the dust bin is not in the reachable vicinity, people tend to throw it near a tree or in a gravel etc.

    Hope all do something like this.

  3. He is being a good citizen. Hope all of us learn a lesson from here.
    Btw, what was the best deal for the 500 gig HDD? internal or external? :)
